Eric Levy reports that ballots from a different district were accidentally delivered to Yates Elementary School in Newport News.

Poll workers found and corrected the error after machines rejected the ballots and election workers were forced to count the wrong ballots by hand.

Election officials say if you voted on the wrong ballot at Yates and didn’t see the name of a specific candidate, you can return and vote on a provisional ballot that will be counted around noon tomorrow.
